Cientistas e militares de vários países e da NATO testaram também comunicações em rede com drones aéreos e de superfície.

Investigadores portugueses estão a desenvolver um conjunto de programas informáticos para permitir que diferentes modelos de drones subaquáticos comuniquem entre si e, em rede, com veículos não tripulados de superfície e aéreos.

LSTS has collaborated with MBARI on several occasions, including the 2013 CANON initiative, providing AUV´s, UAV´s and exchanging experiences in command and control of autonomous vehicles.

This spring MBARI is set out to take CANON another step further, deploying LRAUV´s (long-range autonomous underwater vehicles), one of which is equipped with third-generation Environmental Sample Processor (3G ESP) to collect environmental DNA. Hopefully this will help provide a better pictures of the environmental shifts in the Monterey Bay.
